    Just bland. Eno said ambient music should be trivial enough to be ignored, but still interesting or something.

    Here is an updated file with my 3rd track, a quartertonal one for effect. This may be my most commerically viable composition yet, though that is not saying much about the quality of music on the market.

    Fixed up the harmony, and just cut out the last part.

    Here is a final version. I think it is my most uncompromising piece harmonically. I’m sure many will find it unlistenable.

    You really have much to learn if you want to compose meaningful ambient pieces.
    Ambient music most of the time isn't complex, but it's also not atonal or insipid like your sketches.

    Learn from the best:

    Vangelis:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wzA2b36Jg8
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrtznDTsDVQ

    Those 2 short pieces by Mark Snow shows perfectly how someone talented can compose brilliant piece with length under 1 minute.

    You can't just throw some chords that don't work together (last piece on 2nd video for example). Find some meaningful musical idea/motif and then decide what you want to do with it. Your pieces also sound too rigid. Give them life.

    Thanks for taking the time. But mine are not atonal. All they need to do is convey a mood and make use of timbre, which I think was most successful in the 2nd piece of the 2nd video and the last. I’ve listened to a lot of ambient music, and I want to go in a different direction than most, and making it the most minimal.

    Here is a new piece. Will take time for me to learn on piano. The title was just added on after the pic.
